A few of the top teams on the planet will battle it out on American soil on a Saturday filled with action from all over the world.
Spanish giants Real Madrid take on Tim Howard and English Premier League side Everton in a nationally-televised International Champions Cup match from Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. After opening wins in the preseason tournament, new managers Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Martinez will look to push their talented squads to Wednesday’s title match in Miami.
The clubs that fell to Real Madrid and Everton in the first round, the Los Angeles Galaxy and Juventus, will also be in action on Saturday night. The Italian champions are looking to bounce back from their shootout loss to Everton on Wednesday with a win over the hometown Galaxy, who lost 3-1 to Real on Thursday.
For regular season action outside of MLS, fans can tune into a solid lineup of matches from Liga MX. Surprise early-season leaders Veracruz host traditional powers Cruz Azul, and defending champions Club America take on Atlas.
